Pure Listening Pleasure!
I really loved this book. I've read and listened to quite a few books on "how to be frugal", but they all seemed to be written by people I honestly felt I would not hang out with if I met them in life. This book, however, gave me the exact opposite feeling. Lorilee, the author, has a wonderful self-depricating sense of humour and she does get the fact that the majority of people who are looking to save money are people for whom it does not come naturally.
I loved her anecdotes and found myself bursting into laughter with Lorilee's retelling of the financial mistakes she has made in her life. This book is incredibly inspiring and as I listened I would frequently bookmark and make notes on passages that resonated with me. I have recommended this book to my friends and family members who, like myself, need to start being mindful about our money but can't stand the smugness of most of the frugal-living authors out there.

This is what I was looking for...
Would you listen to Money Secrets of the Amish again? Why?
Yes. Over & over!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Money Secrets of the Amish?
The humbleness of the Amish while saving tons!
Have you listened to any of Lorilee Craker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Learning to live smarter from the Amish, who knew?!
Any additional comments?
I've learned more with this book than googling money secrets. It's so down to earth that even the poorest of folks can benefit from reading & heeding it. I for one will not be throwing out anything anymore but instead putting it to good use & having fun while saving big money:)
